... wrists, neck and ankles, and hold them here until they were taken up to be sold. Many died because of the lack of air, cramped conditions, overheating, starvation and dehydration. There was also an original chain down there which was pretty confronting. It's scary to think how humans once treated each other. Continuing our tour of the town, the influence of different cultures such as the Portuguese, Arabic and Indian as well as the local culture is seen through ...

... doesn't have license. But somehow he got his ass dry. When we got back home all the volunteers that Philemon had here were at our green house and we had dinner together. Was really great and now I feel much more comfy with dutch language then ever before; here it's everywhere. Also Philemon told us that Darata and me we are very special volunteers for them as we are extremely honest and saying all the truth even If it sometimes not very nice. And we loved ...

The school

... an amazing land for tourism, amazing fruits and spices, oil, minerals, materials.. But what's that without people who knows what to do with it? Without people who are already in schools just needs a huge upper from social side. I started with school safety and than finished with the need of normal life for gaining an education but I just thought that it is so connected... And actually it really is, just like the chain of the life - you always start with something to get ...

... reunions are always great! But the annoying thins were really annoying. I couldn't handle all the attention of local guys. If you just answer something for them than the same second they fell in love with you. And they start all the plans that if you stay with them then you will be the queen, loved forever and whatever. ******** and very boring! Girls be aware! :D anyways I spoke with few guys few sentences and after that those guys got in big argument who saw me first, that was ...

Tanzania - Zanzibar

... it´s typical to travel by dalla-dallas. It is a medium-sized car with a cabin for a driver and some solid space on a deck. The deck space is basically open which is quite pleasant especially when it´s really hot. There are tiny benches along all the walls.

The whole transportation process was an unbelievable experience. At first, they tried to charge us much more. We knew we shouldn´t be asked to pay more than TZS 2,000 per person. We had our big bags with us, ...

    Un maravilloso descanso en el Hakuna Matata

    from

    He estado en el Hakuna Matata un par de días, disfrutando de la pequeña, íntima y romántica bahía sin que te molesten los ligones de playa, de la fantástica comida preparada por un chef alemán y, sobre todo, de unas horas maravillosas en el spa. El masaje es un auténtico regalo del cielo y en general, fueron unas vacaciones maravillosas en un paisaje maravilloso y un entorno muy agradable.

    Wonderful timeout in Hakuna Matata

    from

    I've visited Hakuna Matata for a couple of days, enjoying the little, romantic , private bay without beeing hassled by beachboys, the fantastic food prepared by a German chef and overall the absolut wonderful hours in the spa. The massage is really a very special treat and all together it was a wonderful timeout in a stunning landscape and a very nice setting.

    Great location, perfect service, just enjoy!

    from

    When we planned our stay in Zanzibar, we had initially booked accommodation through a travel agent. Then we learned about Hakuna Matata Beach lodge through private recommendation.

    It is heaven , not only for donkeys

    from

    We visited Hakuna Matata just some weeks ago. The norwegian guy must have been in another lodge.

    Not the place to stay in Zanzibar

    from

    Hakuna Matata promotes itself as "one of the most beautiful places of the island, with a private bay with white sandy beach". After one week of safari in Serengeti, we indeed looked forward to relaxing at the beach, and enjoying a swim in this private bay. However, the reality was that the sandy beach was sandy only above the water at high tide, making it painful to bath without shoes. At low tide we would not even consider staying at this beach, so we had to hire a taxi to get to a decent one. It should also be mentioned that the pool at Hakuna Matata was small and uninviting.

    Splendid time at Hakuna Matata

    from

    We went on a three weeks' trip to Tanzania and chose the Hakuna Matata Beach Lodge as our base from which we went twice to the mainland for longer safari tours.

    Einfach SUPER!

    from

    Ich kann nur jedem, der einen ungewöhnlichen und gleichzeitig erholsamen Urlaub sucht - nur das Hakuna Matata wärmstens empfehlen! Durch einen Zufall sind wir dort hingelangt, eine superschöne und gepflegte Anlage, mit vermutlich der besten Küche auf Zanzibar (wir habe paar experimente gewagt). Die Inhaber sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, von dort aus kann man quer durch ganz Tansania reisen. Wir haben von dort aus eine mehrtägige Safari-Reise gemacht, aber es gibt auch viele andere Möglichkeiten. Es muss einem nie langweilig werden .... Falls Sie dort hinreisen- wie gesgat was ich nur empfehlen kann - sollte unbedingt Paul & Paula kennen lernen :-))

    Es war wunderschön!

    The Place to be at Zanzibar

    from

    Im September letzten Jahres war ich einige Male beruflich in Tanzania. Obwohl die Freizeit nicht sehr üppig war, besuchte ich zusammen mit einer Kollegin die Insel Zanzibar. Die Fluganbindung von Dar es Salaam nach Zanzibar ist gut und recht preisgünstig. Nach vorheriger Zimmerbestellung in der Hakuna Matata Beach Lodge wurden wir direkt am Airport von einem freundlichen Taxifahrer in Empfang genommen, der uns schnell und sicher zur Lodge brachte. Die Fahrstrecke beträgt ca 15 Km, also ein kurzer Sprung. Den prompten Abholservice fanden wir schon mal toll. Angekommen auf der Lodge waren wir schlicht weg begeistert. Die gesamte Anlage ist liebevoll und mit mit viel persönlichem "Herzblut" gestaltet. Genauso freundlich und herzlich wurden wir dann auch von Rose und Fritz, den Inhabern, begrüßt. Wir nahmen einen ersten kühlen Drink auf der Terrasse mit einem unvergleichlichen Blick auf den Indischen Ozean. Das Personal an der Bar war sehr aufmerksam und freundlich. Nach einem kurzen Gespräch mit Fritz war für den Nachmittag ein Besuch auf der Gewürzfarm gebucht. der sehr empfehlenswert ist. Das Abendessen, von Rsoe mit ihren fleißigen Helfern zubereitet, ließ keine Wünsche offen: Lecker, Pikant, Schmackhaft und das alles was man sich sonst noch wünschen kann. Ein toller, gekühlter Weiswein aus Südafrika rundete das Essen ab, gekrönt vom folgenden Nachtisch der ebenfalls super lecker war. Ein anschließender gemütlich Klönschnack mit Rose und Fritz bei einer zweiten Flasche leckeren Wein machte den Abend perfekt. An dieser Stelle verrate ich bewußt nicht was es alles gab: Selber ausprobieren !! Die Nacht verbrachten wir in den ruhigen, gemütlichen und sehr sauberen Appartments. Auch hier fehlt es dem Gast an nichts: Klimanlage, Ventilator, Moskitonetz etc. alles vorhanden. Wer möchte kann vor dem Schlafen gehen noch einen Film im Freilichtkino anschauen. Das Frühstück , eingenommen an der selben Stelle auf der Terrasse wie das Abendessen, war fast ein Highlight. Neben allen "normalen" Dingen wie Brötchen gab es eine Auswahl frischer Früchte, selbstgemachte Marmeladen, frisch gepressten Saft und Tee bzw. Kaffee nach Wunsch. Einfach herrlich....
